    Feel free to discuss any decepticon, predacon, vehicon, or the like who've either expressed desire to usurp power, or have actually made action to do so. Examples include, Hellbat, Ratbat, Straxus, Shockwave, Tankor, you get the idea.

    Megatron II is my absolute favorite. That dude was a master of manipulation, and cooked up some great schemes.

    RID Steeljaw. Even when you know he's lying you still want to believe him.

    Beast Wars Megatron was such a great schemer he eventually brought both factions under his heel.

    I wouldn't count BW Megatron, as he was already the established villain leader of the shows.

    Rhinox did an outstanding job of schemer in BMachines, even if he wasn't completely evil.

    There are a few that have made an impression, Leozack, Terrorsaur and Marvel Ratbat.

    My favourite however was Armada Sideways, he was scheming against everyone right from the off. His betrayal against Hotshot also caught me completely off guard.

    Tarantulas was the evil schemer that actually pulled off most of his plans.

    Terrorsaur, Black Archnia and Tarantulas were all schemers of sorts. It was always fun to see them try to out scheme Beast Megatron.

    And Waspinator has...plans!

    I know he's the boss. But BW Megs will always be my favorite schemer out of all TF fiction.

    Both of my favorites are from Beast Wars: Megatron and Tarantulas. Tarantulas fills the role of the non-boss schemer and does it better than any Starscream ever did, except maybe Cybertron. As for Megatron, well, as the man himself said, "Spiders spin their webs, yes. But I spin them larger.

    BW Megatron.

    But for non-Megatron's.

    I'd actually almost would argue Getaway in MTMTE, and of course Tarantulas and Armada Sideways.
